Re: dell c600 laptop cursor arrow
I?ve had this problem with several C600 series laptops and the problem has always been fixed by reinstalling the drivers for the touchpad/joystick mouse controller.
If you are using Windows XP here is the link to the correct driver: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R68445&SystemID=LAT_PNT_P3C_C600&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=283&devlib=0&typecnt=1&vercnt=6&formatcnt=1&libid=17&fileid=88809

It is possible the battery where the contacts from the laptop fit into or the gold colored contacts themselves need to be repaired. Worst case, the spill short circuited the contacts on the board, in which case you will have to replace the board. I would suggest really cleaning the gold contacts on the laptop and the small slots on the battery itself with a Q-tip with a little bit of rubbing alcohol on it. Please make sure both areas are totally dry before reassembling the battery.
Ok on keyboard, press WINDOWS logo see start page comes up. using keypads arrow keys, access the control panel, find mouse, if you are using vista, set classic view. you may get around by tab key and up>down>rigth>left arrow keys.
Install driver again or use update \. come back start and shot down the computer by shotdown arrow, do not use brown button will not shotdown, it is stanby (On vista). Then turn on again see what you see>
If can not, Just use same system and reach out the system tools from accessories>system tools>Make defragmentation.
No result > make system restore. No result see tech.
I had a C600 do the same thing. It kept happening but I got some control over it by blowing around the edges of the touchpad with canned air and then cleaning the touchpad agressively with 99% isopropyl alcohol and a soft lint free cloth. If that makes a noticeable difference then we are on the right track. If the problem becomes unmanageable touchpad replacement may be in order. Let me know if this helps. If you need further solutions I will research further and post as data becomes available.
